The Archos lacks the flair of more expensive rivals, then, but it does get the basics right: a good screen, decent build quality, enough power for browsing and gaming, and a largely untouched operating system. The poor battery life is disappointing, but if you hanker after a tablet with a larger screen, it’s worth considering.

The Archos 80 Titanium proves that you can get a decent tablet without breaking the bank. Its screen isn't high resolution, but it's a good IPS panel which matches the iPad mini for half as much. Performance is also good, as is build quality; only the cameras let the side down. If you're on a tight budget or want a tablet for your kids, this is a great choice.

Comment

Model:

The Archos 80 Titanium is a little bit of a conundrum. With a tough metal chassis, sleek, white, minimalist design and ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor with a clock rate of 1.6GHz, the Archos 80 Titanium is well built, beautiful, and powerful. It is also pretty capable of running most 3D games. It sports a budget price, making it look like great value for money. This may seem like a winning device all around, but unfortunately everything else that lets the Archos 80 Titanium down. Everything else is mediocre at best. With a dismal internal storage capacity of 8 GB, a microSD card is mandatory. The microUSB port is only for file transfers and will not charge the device, only the DC plug will. The battery life is disappointing, lasting approximately 6 hours for light to moderate use.

The 1024x768 resolution of the 8 inch display provides decent, yet mid-range colors and contrast. The coating of the screen is visibly grainy, distorting images further. It runs Android version 4.1.1, which is behind the times. Most current devices run Android 4.2, which adds many more useful features, like multiple user account support. The Archos 80 Titanium is a stylish, yet ultimately unsatisfying device with many nagging problems. Its price may seem like its saving grace, but more powerful devices with less problems are available for just a little bit more.

ARM Mali-400 MP4: OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU for ARM based SoCs with 4 fragment processors and 1 vertex processor.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

RK3066: Cheap dual core SoC with two ARM Cortex A9 cores (including NEON extensions) and a ARM Mali 400MP4 GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.0": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.44 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Archos: Archos is a French consumer electronics company that was established in 1988. The company manufactures portable media players and portable storage devices. Archos has developed a variety of products, including digital audio players, PVPs (portable video players), digital video recorders, and a personal digital assistant. The first laptop reviews appeared in 2008/2009. The global market share of Archos laptops is quite limited.


77%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
